Wonderful sttory I can't wait to find out what happens next.
| Dipi chapter 20 . 6/30/2012
Wonderful as always. Though i must admit, it brings out a depressing streak in me. Your writing communicates the anguish of Snape in a painfully realistic way.
It was enjoyable and i ended up reading last four chapters for the mere joy it had to offer.

Very enjoyable description of the effects of Polyjuice and of the meeting of the two Pomfreys, well done!
The plot thickens, and it's nice to see that Snape has such trustful allies and is not alone, at last :)

Ah, the Harry-is-love JK never managed to show us in canon. How sweet it is.
But I think Hermione should have been able to deduce who had been the Bonder for Snape's Unbreakable Vow. She had learned in HBP that it was made to Narcissa and that Draco was antagonistic to Snape. With Lucius in Azkaban, surely Narcissa's sister was the most likely alternative.

I don't remember how Bellatrix "died" in your story but I was surprised to see that she has taken possession of Arthur' body!
I'm glad this mystery is resolved (and that Harry is "clean")... but now I hope somebody is going to intervene before Bellatrix kills our dear potion master!

Fascinating and quite lyrical.
| Dipi chapter 19 . 5/8/2012
Another wonderful chapter. Seems like the mystery finally got solved. It's nice to know Voldemort isn't back. I would like to see how Severus gets away from this enemy and how they work on the enormous task Hermione and he have taken upon themselves.

How long Snape must have waited to say those words to Lupin. And yet, they come in the end not from inside him but from the evil power of a haunt.
| sevenphoenixtears chapter 19 . 5/7/2012
An amazing chapter! I love Lupin and Snape's conversation. It's incredible that Bellatrix has managed to worm herself in just to get to Snape. I wonder how long she has been taking Arthur over for. Severus is a brave man, I love how clever he is, I hope he can find a way to destroy Bellatrix. Or that hope comes. Thank you! Can't wait for the next update :)

Hi Lady Memory!
Thanks for continuing the story! Please don't let us wait that long for the next update!
| sevenphoenixtears chapter 18 . 4/14/2012
Love this chapter. That book is so dark but powerful. It looks like only Harry can help, not that Hermione and Snape would let him. I don't know why Hermione's transfiguration spell didn't work when Harry's did. I hope Snape gets his sight back soon. Thanks.

I really like this Harry. Serious but sweet. And I think Severus will like this Harry more once he finally lets him in to speak to him. If only Severus will give Harry a chance first.

After a hard fought war with casualties and uncertain loyalties on both sides, there is bound to be a great deal of resentment towards someone who played the part of a double agent. I imagine that had canon Snape survived (which he did ;)), there would be a lot of people out for revenge. His life would be very difficult; I doubt he could have much of a public one. That said, I can understand how the sons of Death Eaters would relish the opportunity for payback.
I love how diffident Harry was here - he seems to be behaving respectfully and thoughtfully towards Snape. I hope the connection they now have is maintained.
OMG... VOLDEMORT? Nooooooo!

I reviewed the wrong chapter last time so this is a review for chapter 14.
"I always thought that pictures needed a restorer, not a Mediwitch"
That line made me laugh out loud, it's such a Snape thing to say.
This chapter had a different feel from the previous ones - I think it perhaps that's due to the familiarity of Hogwarts and a sense that things are going to change for him.
Flitwick's Charms are genius particularly the walking stick. I was wondering if there were any magical medical aids that could help him and you answered that.
I enjoyed the conversation with Hermione very much and the SS/HG shipper in me was willing them to be VERY good friends but I know that romance isn't the aim of this story :) I felt for him when he felt jealous because she referred to Minerva and Remus by their first names whilst respectfully still calling Snape, Professor. Trust him to see the negative implications of that. Poor Ron and Remus though - they have all suffered so much.
And now! Bring on The Chosen One! :)

He's home at last! I love your description of all the things he can smell that lead him to conclude he is not in the Headmaster's office. And now he has to acclimatise himself to living in a familiar place without being able to see it or move around it as freely as he used to. Severus Snape without a wand is a very sad thing indeed. Another great chapter - You wring such emotion from us as we go on our journey with Severus.
